Belkyra, an FDA approved procedure, is revolutionary because it sculpts and reduces the fat content underneath the chin without the need to resort to older, more invasive procedures like liposuction.
Upon an initial consultation with one of our medical professionals and a thorough discussion of your eligibility and treatment plan, our medical doctor will apply a local anesthetic to the area under the chin receiving injections. After 15 minutes, the medical professional will administer the injections into specific points of the chin. This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and will not require any recovery time. In fact, many of our patients finish their procedure and resume to their daily routines.;
Due to the injectable nature of Belkyra, some patients may experience redness, swelling, bruising and general discomfort to the area post-injection. The area may be numb for a few hours post – procedure, and patients are encouraged to take over-the-counter pain killers to minimize any discomfort. Usually however, given the safe and non-surgical nature of Belkyra, the side effects are minimal.
Belkyra (Kybella) is specifically used for the reduction and elimination of the double chin, or excess fat, and most conveniently, it can be performed by our medical professionals right within our clinic in a matter of 30 minutes. Belkyra’s purpose is specifically fine-tuned to the chin and neck region and its chemistry, so its results are attained much faster mainly for those trouble areas than any other non-invasive weight loss methods on the market today.
Belkyra works by breaking down the molecules of the fat content in the chin and absorbs the waste into the body. Belkyra works best after a series of sessions, thus providing you and your chin and neck time to slowly adjust to a slimmer and firmer appearance. The greatest perk of such a procedure is that you can attain permanent fat reduction results. Once the fat is eliminated, it is permanently secreted out of your body.
Belkyra contains natural properties found in the body known as deoxycholic acid. Once injected, this chemical invades and breaks the barriers of the fat cell membranes. Thus, releasing the contents into the bloodstream, and then processed out as waste matter.
No, we only use Belkyra for the purpose of reducing the fat deposits under the chin and to eliminate the appearance of sagging double chins. At GTA Cosmetic Clinic, we provide injection Lipolysis to melt off excess fat in other parts of the body, as well as non-surgical laser treatments. All of our services can be discussed with our medical professional upon the initial consultation.
Belkyra is more progressive, and in a series of 2-4 sessions, patients will see impressive results. The sessions are usually spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to allow the body to decompose and process the fat out of the body.
